SECRET(S): None that I know of
When I saw this DVD at
a local electronics store, I was shocked! Why? It's
because this anime is very perverted. No, it's not hentai
(adult anime) and it's not anything like those type of
Think of it as mixing
"South Park" with the perverted jokes that you hear in
the locker room. Juvenile humor at it's best with plenty of
fart jokes, mooning and an extra load of perverted humor.
That's what "The Ping Pong Club" is about. So, if
you don't like this type of humor...stay away!
For those familiar
with Japanese television shows, think of it as a live version of
I first heard about
this series a few years ago through my friends and a female friend
from Japan collected the manga and I just remembered how
interesting the character designs were for the anime.
I also remembered how interesting this anime after watching the
episode, so once I saw this DVD for sale, I asked myself this
question: "Is America ready for The Ping Pong
Club"? I guess this remains to be seen.
The story is about a
group of interesting individuals who are members of a Ping Pong
Club. The stories feature the lecherous duo Maeno and Izawa
who are perverted but have an ability disguising themselves.
These guys are truly off the wall. Then the other
members. One is a guy who has a problem with body odor and a
belly button with an extreme outtie, the president is your normal
guy who likes the beautiful but overly tough girl of the club,
then there is the short member with a big head who likes to get
his thrills from animals and the playboy of the group. Each
make up the "Ping Pong Club".
This series really is
off-the-scale perverted humor and what do you know, it's available
in the US and on DVD but the weird thing is, Software Sculptors
released this DVD not from episode 1 but starting at TV episode 23
through episode 34.
episodes and most likely shown late night.
worry...the show doesn't necessarily have a typical anime series
plot. Each episode is different.
The episodes are
similar to the "Urusei Yatsura" and "Crayon Shin
Chan" series. Each half hour episode contains a total
of two 15-minute episodes.
So, what kind of humor
will you find in these episodes?
One episode has Maeno
and Izawa helping an elderly ventriloquist after they busted his
doll. So, Maeno is forced to disguise himself as a doll and
together with the ventriloquist performs at a local school of
young kids. Unfortunately, Maeno's perverted mind kicks in.
features the group trying to find their missing membership
dues. Someone in the club took the money but what this
member is using the stolen money for is shocking.
Again, this anime is
not hentai. There is quite a bit of nudity and fart jokes,
so you know where this anime is going.
As for the DVD, it
features a trailer, title free OP credits and Software Sculptors
It's actually quite
entertaining and if you are in a mood to watch something unusual,
funnier and more entertaining than "South Park", this
anime is definitely for you!
